What is the Consortium Loan Service?

  • The Consortium Loan Service is a way for you to obtain books that are not available at your home library.
  • You can request materials held at Connecticut’s 12 community colleges, 4 state universities, and the Connecticut State Library.
  • Books are usually delivered in a few days to the Tunxis Library. The service is available to current Tunxis students, faculty, and staff.

How to Place a Consortium Loan Request

  • Find the item you’d like to request in the catalog
  • Sign in to your account
  • Click on the item you would like to request
  • A list of institutions owning the library will display
  • Choose the library you want to request the item from and click on “available”
  • Click the “Request” button
  • Fill out the form and click on “request”

Please note that majority of the libraries’ collections are requestable, however, some collections are not available to consortia borrowers. In this case, you will not see the “request” button. You may request the item by filling out the form for interlibrary loan.
